Ursher's got the voice that makes your booty go *CLAP*

In all seriousness he's got an insanely silky mid-tone, a stronger than expected low register, weighty 4th octave belts and some surprisingly excellent 5th octave stuff(check out the C♯5 from "Can You Help Me" or the live cover of "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" with Adam Levine) that isn't just full on head voice/falsetto.

One of the defining R&B voices of our time, arguably the most successful male artist of the last decade. Does anybody else remember when Confessions was(almost pervasively) crowding the charts in '04 and '05? Why didn't this guy have a thread?

I guess this is the live version you mean? Sounds like even an A5 at 3:35
